Hi Mike,

I received a email named “All Cinder Drivers Must Have a Third Party CI By March 19th 2015” and I feel confused about the “*real* storage backend”.

One of the requirements is: Run Tempest [5][6] volume tests against the devstack environment that's hooked up to your *real* storage backend.

·         And my confusion is:
·         Every time the CI is triggered by a newly came patch, the 3rd CI will build a new devstack environment and create a default cinder.conf file whick will set the backend to “lvmdriver-1” automatically<app:ds:automatically>. And the tempest will run against “lvmdriver-1”. So what’s the meaning for a *real* storage backend since the cinder.conf will be set to use “lvmdriver-1” automatically<app:ds:automatically> for every newly came patch ? And how should I configure the cinder.conf file to run the tempest for the newly came driver patch came from different venders since different venders need different configuration for cinder.conf file and need different storage backend. I mean, does our CI should run tempest against our *real* storage backend for every newly came driver patch in cinder?

Thanks and regards,
